From the event Facebook page: “Just three months ago the people of Maine voted overwhelmingly to expand access to Medicaid for 70,000 Maine families. Gov. LePage and his legislative allies are already working to delay implementation and weaken the law.

Come show Gov. LePage and legislators that the people of Maine are watching and that we won’t accept any more delays or attempts to weaken the new Medicaid expansion law. All Mainers need health care, now!”

As illustrated by the photos above, a large crowd of supporters gathered Tuesday evening to speak to the press outside in the cold, then went inside the State House as to urge legislators to work on implementation immediately.

KVO members and other Mainers for HealthCare coalition partners spoke with a large number of legislators on hand for Governor LePage’s final State of the State address. While many lawmakers are on board, the governor continues to oppose implementation. So stay tuned!
